Survival

"Survival is a form of resistance."

Cares a Lot

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,

No sunrise this morning, but the thick clouds have created a beautiful pattern of gray, blue, and light.

So many paths that wind and wind,
While just the
art of being kind
Is all the sad world needs."
